Fringe

Say goodbye to stray hairs and flyaways in your fringe. Master how to style as you dry to achieve a flawless, smooth result with the ghd air® hairdryer.  

step 1: 
On damp hair, use the ghd tail comb to brush out your fringe.  

step 2: 
For a naturally smooth, silky finish place the ghd natural bristle radial brush size 1 under your fringe, twisting slightly to pull every hair in and style as you dry.   

step 3: 
Hold your ghd air® hairdryer over your head, targeting the heat at the barrel of the brush as you pull downwards.   

step 4: 
Repeat until the full fringe is dry. 

Tip: Finish your style with the ghd final shine spray, to create a gleaming end style.  

Straight hair

Create natural lift and flowing locks by blow-drying your hair straight. Totally achievable, give your look a smooth and kink-free finish.

step 1:  
On clean damp hair, prep your locks with ghd straight and smooth spray.   

step 2: 
Blow-dry hair with the ghd air® hairdryer until it’s about 80% dry.    

step 3: 
Begin styling with the ghd natural bristle radial brush. Taking a 1-2 inch section of hair, place the brush near your roots and direct the heat from the dryer downwards, at the barrel of the brush.  

Tip: the ghd natural bristle radial brush is available in a number of sizes to suit different hair lengths.  

step 4: 
Move your brush and your hairdryer down from root to tip to create a silky finish. Repeat on all sections until hair is dry and straight. 

Bouncy curls

Introduce bouncy curls into your hair and create enviable volume and shape – all with your hairdryer. Defined, lustrous curls can be styled quickly and easily as you dry, with the ghd air® hairdryer

step 1:  
Prep damp hair with ghd straight and tame cream.  

step 2: 
Blow-dry your hair with the ghd air® hairdryer until it’s almost dry.  

step 3:  
Take the ghd ceramic vented radial brush and, starting from the ends, roll a 1-2 inch section up to your roots.

Once your roll is in place use the ghd air® hairdryer to blow dry hair in this position. 

Tip: For tighter curls use a smaller ghd ceramic vented radial brush

step 5:  
Once dry, use the cool shot feature on your air® hairdryer to reduce the heat of your hair before removing the brush. Let your hair fall naturally into twists. 

step 6: 
Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 throughout for a head full of curls.  

step 7: 
Apply ghd final fix hairspray for curves that stay in, before using your fingers to gently shape your twists into bouncing curls.

Repeat throughout until all hair has soft, luxurious waves.

step 1:  
Comb ghd root lift spray through the mid-lengths and ends of damp hair to help define your finished curls.  

step 2: 
For a luxe, sleek look use the ghd air® hairdryer to blow-dry your hair straight, making sure you keep your dryer facing downwards to avoid creating flyaways.

Once dry, take a 1-2 inch section of hair and roll the ghd natural bristle radial brush from the ends to the mid-lengths.  

step 4: 
Once the roll is in place, blow-dry hair and aim the heat from the dryer at the barrel of the brush until all the hair has been heated in this position.

Use the cool shot feature on the ghd air® hairdryer to cool your hair before releasing the wave from your brush. Twist your brush as the wave drops to create luxurious, curling ends.

Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 throughout your hair.

Finish with a mist of ghd final fix hairspray to keep your curls in place.
